The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are going to be officially available in Pakistan starting late next week. Apple’s latest flagship duo will be available in Pakistan at same time through all mobile phone operators and some smartphone distributors.
Apple partnered with almost all local telecom operators to launch its iPhones in Pakistan. This is exactly how it happened last year and currently pre-orders are being accepted while shipping will start from Nov 13th, 2015.
The added advantage of phones sold by telecom operators is that they will come with official warranties of one year. These officially sold iPhones will also be factory unlocked and therefor could be used on any local network.
The prices for the iPhone 6S and the 6S Plus are going to be as following:
- iPhone 6S:
- 16GB : Rs 93,724
- 64GB : Rs 107,524
- 128 GB : Rs 121,324
- iPhone 6S Plus:
- 16GB : Rs 107,524
- 64GB : Rs 121,324
- 128 GB : Rs 135,124
If I may speak frankly, iPhones this time around are going to be expensive in Pakistan. These official prices are higher than the ones that are sold in open market. But then again, those open market devices come without warranty and some of you might not prefer those especially with such an expensive gadget.
Just to give you an idea, the price of the cheapest iPhone 6S is $650 in the US which converts to about 68.5k at the current exchange rate of $1 to Rs 105.
Now add some taxes (both in Pakistan and US) and this phone should ideally cost around Rs. 80K — which will be officially sold for 93.5K.
Not to mention, iPhones are available for cheaper in the open market with the iPhone 6S going for about 77k for the 16GB model and 97k for the iPhone 6S Plus 16GB model. These prices are true for both open market or online retail outlets that sell iPhones in Pakistan.
Just in case if you are wondering, both iPhone 6S and 6S Plus come in the same shell as last year’s iPhones but have deep changes as far as the internals go. Processor, GPU, RAM and cameras have been improved in both version of the iPhone.
